Have you ever wondered about the impact or importance of adding an image to your website post or social media platforms and whether they really make that much of a difference? If the answer’s yes, this article is for you!
It’s true that visuals such as images, videos, infographics or any type of visual creations are a necessity for engaging your online visitors. Your choice of visuals help to tell a story, share a message, and give your text content context. It seems that people can’t get enough of a good visual and articles with images get significantly more total views.
Tina Courtney, online marketer, web executive, and multi-faceted writer for SitePro News stated in a recent article, Image Optimization: The Achilles Heel of SEO:
“When images are integrated with blog posts, social updates, or even sent to a friend via text, they instantly become more compelling. When it
comes to marketing to audiences across the Web, visuals are needed to pull attention away from all of the other distractions competing for a
user’s interest. No matter if the image is one you captured yourself, or a beauty that came from one of the many photography sites around the
Web, they are needed to keep people engaged and to improve SEO.”
So on that note, you can see that the benefits are actually enormous. If you need further convincing, read how and why you should use images in your business communications, marketing and social networks at:
